55% off Hostgator hosting with coupon

If you are looking for a shared web hosting service for your website or blog, Hostgator (which we use for the current iteration of the main blog, and previously used for the “camera reviews stream”) has a 55% off standard price sale when you use coupon REDCROSS15 until Wednesday May 6 at 11:59pm central. Coupon name is such because they are sponsoring the Red Cross Tour du Rouge Houston to New Orleans benefit.

IMPORTANT: The discount applies to the first payment you make. If you purchase a month to month plan, you get a discount on the first month and nothing more. If you purchase a prepaid plan (up to three years in length), your first payment is the total amount covering the whole period, and the 55% off is on the total amount. So if you are going month to month, this is a very small discount. On the other hand, if you are planning on a longer term plan, it’s a good discount.
